Happy Easter

Good morning friends.  Just wanted to wish everyone well and share a few photos.

Had an Easter Egg hunt with the dogs. They think they are dyed! Wink, Wink…They are color blind.


Finally baked an avocado with a baked egg center. WOW. It is perfection.



Made scrambled eggs for the doggies, after all they found the eggs!




Yummy Easter Breakfast.

I love a quick and easy smoothie in the morning to drink on my commute to work, so I whipped up a Fresh Green Goodness Smoothie.


1 Cup Soy Milk

1/2 Banana

4 Large Strawberries

1 Tablespoon Organic Matcha

Makes 1 Smoothie. Blend and Enjoy!



So refreshing and clean tasting. I really enjoyed the smooth green tea flavor. I look forward to baking with Matcha. I found some really great recipes.

Here’s another recipe I found that is on my Matcha Must Make List.

Berry Good Morning Smoothie

½ cup cold orange juice
1 tsp. Matcha
2 tsp. warm water
1/3 cup chopped strawberries
1/3 cup blueberries
½ banana, sliced
1. Mix Matcha and warm water until blended.
2. Add all ingredients into a blender and run until smooth.
3. If needed, add more orange juice or water for a thinner smoothie.
Makes 1 cocktail.
